Trail shared by Omar Delgado

A great trail with some nice, smooth elevation that feeds into other trails.

Park is open from dawn to dusk.

Runner Notes

Trail can flood heavily after rain.

Description

You can start at the double A (AA) trail marker of the Park Tour Road/Siege Road. The trail is wide enough for two and has some small elevation gains along this mostly wooded route. You can easily get to Taylor's Creek Trail from the T trail marker and loop back using Willcox Trail or Poor Creek Trail for a little extra distance. Approaching from the U trail marker at the other end will require parking past the Park Resources Building Road. The picnic area is a little far and will require you to run a bit on Park Tour Road/Siege Road to get to the trail on this end.

Flora & Fauna

Oaks, pines, maples, turtles, squirrels, deer, and birds.
